2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly tart aroma, pours reddish amber with a large off white head. There’s a slight tartness to the beer, which is not to style. I can pick up some bready malts at the beginning, then the tartness comes in for the finish. I’m not sure if this is an infected bottle, or if they were aiming for this flavor.

A deep amber appearance. And a delicious taste. I really like the aroma of it, has a amber not with a fruit after tone

Nose is pretty malt forward all the way. All this caramel, biscuits, cracker, breads and whatnot. Flavor is similar but approaching a touch of some stale caramels. Sweet and a little cloying.

tap. Amber with small head. Averageish amber. Caramel malt body. Very light hops. Decent, but not much to get excited about.

16 ounce can. Orange color. Some taste of caramel and malt but an overall fairly weak body and not enough flavor.

Can. Just a little bit of haze to the deep amber body. Head is thin and beige, while aromas are dates, figs and caramel. Flavor is sugary and fruity amber. Lots of brown sugar, toffee, figs and dates. This beer is sticky and sweet, but not real interesting. Almost tastes like a cloying barleywine light.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
$5.50 pint at Vinsetta Garage in Michigan.
Appearance: Brown/amber. Don’t recall a haze, if there is one, it’s faint. No head on it. Zero lacing left behind. Very average looking.
Smell: Weird! I couldn’t tell if it was the glass or the beer, but it was an odd farm/spice sort of smell that I wasn’t at all expecting from the style of beer. There’s also plenty of malt in there as well -- this isn’t an overly hopped up Amber, which seems to be pretty popular. Smells alright, nothing fantastic.
Taste/feel: Easy drinking’s about the best thing I can say. Inoffensive. Pretty enjoyable. Not much to it though. A bit sweet with a little hop bitterness with the caramel malts, but it ends there... nothing particularly unique about it. Medium carbonation with a somewhat light mouthfeel.
The very definition of a forgettable beer. It tastes decent and I had no problem getting through the beer, but it’s just not at all interesting. Eh.
